Livestock Insurance

An insurance policy providing coverage for losses due to the death or injury of one's livestock. Livestock insurance generally covers accidents, acts of God, thefts and so forth. It usually excludes illegal acts, confiscation, and quarantines. As with all insurance, one must pay a premium to receive the coverage.
